UNITRONIC® – Innovative Data Cables

This is the brand of choice if you want fast, safe and forward-thinking solutions for transferring data. The range includes data cables for all electronic applications, from tiny cables in coffee machines to those transferring huge amounts of data in supercomputers.

What Are Data Transmission Cables?

We certainly aren’t giving away a secret to you when we say that data cables and wires are intended to transmit data. This is done using a cable or a wire.

But what we can tell you:

  • Are data and signals the same?
  • Where are which data cables used?
  • Which data cables are available at JJ-LAPP?
  • What are the differences between these?
  • Where can JJ-LAPP data cables be used in industrial automation processes?

Using data cables, you can connect devices with identical data transmission technology to one another and thus have them communicated. Most of the time this is done by using data connectors.

While we are controlling an increasing number of devices wirelessly at home using an app and data cables are mostly hidden in house technology, data cables have now become indispensable in industry.

Whenever information is to be sent from a sender to a receiver stranded, it must be transported by wire or light.

Step 1: The sender transmits the information as a physical variable in the form of a signal to the receiver. This can be an electrical or optical signal.

Step 2: The receiver measures the signal received, i.e. the voltage/current or electromagnetic wave. If information can be read from the measured signal, this is known as data.

In telecommunication, low-frequency and high-frequency technology, very classic signals have been sent and received for many years. Data should also be routed from one floor to the next for the cabling of an office building. This is done via cables. Wireless data transmission would not work across the board.

For industrial communication, miniature devices nowadays have to hold and, in some cases, be able to transmit and receive information very quickly and over long distances. This is done using data packages and with the participation of an almost arbitrary number of network participants.

The application area of data cables therefore extends from conventional communication technology to building, factory and process automation.

No Automation Without Data Cable!

Automation in industry is effective and future-proof. They help you increase your production speed, the quality of your products and save time and personnel costs. To put it simply, an automation system consists of sensors, actuators, control computers and a communication system that connects all components with one another using data cables. To ensure smooth communication, communication processes usually take place at several levels.
